War Horse Review

At the start of the year one of the films I was looking forward to seeing the most was Steven Spielberg's War Horse but I never got the chance to see it in the cinema. Recently though I got the film on DVD and was finally able to watch it and, while it's not as good as the incredible stage version (aka the best stage show I've ever seen) this is still a great film.

RIP Tony Scott

A few days ago, one of the greatest action movie directors of the past few decades, Tony Scott, committed suicide. I wish to offer my sympathies to the family and friends of Tony Scott as they come to terms with this horrific event.

Brave Review

So I just went to see the new Pixar film Brave, which people want to be Pixar's return to form after the disaster of Cars 2. I was really looking forward to the film since it felt interesting that Pixar was doing it's first female protagonist and that the film is set in Scotland (making it more historically accurate than Braveheart) and I really enjoyed this film.

So Now I've Found Out My Most Anticipated Film of Next Year

So today it was confirmed that Kick-Ass 2 will be released on June 28th 2013 and Aaron Johnson, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Nicolas Cage and Chloe Grace Moretz will be reprising their roles.
The sound you're hearing is me cheering in joy over this news. I loved Kick-Ass (see my review) and the June release date shows a lot of confidence on Univeral's part that the film will be popular.
Right now the big questions are whether or not Jeff Waldlow can fill the shoes of Matthew Vaughn (but I'm optimistic seeing as Vaughn hand-picked Waldlow for the job and Vaughn will still be involved) and whether Moretz' age will affect the film considering that Kick-Ass was filmed 4 years ago.
Still, I'm really looking forward to this film and will be watching it as soon as it comes out.

The Olympic Ticket Scalper

Normally I don't do posts focused on web videos, the most I do is link you to these videos. However on this occasion I have to make an exception simply because this video is so funny.
